Have you got an example? What is 'not too cheap', IOW what did you have done and what did it cost?

These are the guys that recovered my rear Conn-Ferr seat in my FJ40. They did a good job -- looks original.

I'll pull the receipt later tonight. He installed two seat covers (I provided), installed seat heaters (I provided), fixed broken springs, and used new matting. They look really good.

I think it was $4-$500 total.

Can you also give me more info on this? Did you use ones that fit over the existing cloth or replace it? Suppliers?

Other than the common edge wear on the outside of the driver's side the cloth is in decent shape. So I was thinking of having just a new panel sewn in to replace the worn one but otherwise just leave the cloth as is. So new foam and a repair, which I would expect to be a bit less.

I got new vinyl for the seats from CCOT. They were some replacement seat covers that went on in place of the original stuff.

I saw a bunch of seats the guy was working on and he cuts new foam if yo uneed it. prolly sews new covers and patches for old ones too.

I know a guy off of Santa Fe. Golden Needle, he did my Alfa top and leather seats, door panels also. Tell him Chris Davis with the red Alfa that he did the tan top and tan leather seats sent you, he remembers me.

Very reasonable, always has a couple of cool vintage cars he is working on.

One man shop.
